Have eaten here several times, and is always busy, but to me its nothing special. I asked the waitress if the French baguettes on the menu were the same as the normal baguettes on the menu and her reply was "I think so" but she did not go to check. My food came and the coleslaw was missing but it... More

Well aside from the nice position and aspect of the café there is nothing else good to say! The staff are discourteous and abrupt, the food is doesn't even class as average and they over charged then had the nerve to say it was our own fault! There are at least 6 other cafes in Yarmouth, go to one of... More

Found the staff quite unpleasant particularly the woman who served us. Items on the bill we did not order, when we went back about it - our fault because we kept asking for items from the menu. Charged £1 for a cup of hot water because they STILL have to clean the cup. Would suggest anyone looking for a washing... More

Good place for a cup of tea or coffee, ice cream and flapjacks. Meals are also served which look very good.

Just back from a 4 day break in Yarmouth. Had a super time and this cafe was one of the highlights. I have been a bit shocked to read some of the other reviews because we had such a lovely time. Our waitress Jade was very friendly and gave just the right amount of attention, and even remembered what we... More

I'm not sure how this place gets any 5 star reviews. This is our first trip to the Isle of Wight and the first restaurant on this trip. It looked so promising, the decor and atmosphere looks great and they had a crooner singing 50's hits, which was nice. The food on the menu sounds great, but that's where it... More

But the weird kitchen is closed thing they've started on Thursdays to Saturdays between 5-6 pm is silly.. Lots of people coming in say food please!!! Staff getting pissie as they want you to either sit outside or go away.... More

Wow what a stunning location! Beautiful little cafe and I loved the decoration. Couldn't really comment on the food as just had tea and coffee but my 5 year old enjoyed his millionaire's shortbread and walk along the pier afterwards.

We popped in for lunch today and it was fine but nothing more than that. A couple of little details that would have made a big difference to us: our 2 yr old had the "kids lunch bag" which had a sandwich, drink, crisps and toy in - it could have done with an apple or some grapes (really anything...

After a good day on the IOW we ended up at Yarmouth to take the ferry. The family needed sustenance and 'Gossips' was recommended. Afternoon tea (and coffee) for the family were just right - the carrot cake was really good and apple tartine so tasty and fresh. Very pleasant and friendly staff with tables inside or outside - some... More
